Front Page again!

Thanks to Betsy3 for putting me in a treasury again that made it to the front page AGAIN! She picks such lovely pieces and pops then into these treasuries that just make me drool!

I love all the jewelry pieces she picks, too. That ring is TO DIE FOR!

It's funny- Whenever I make a treasury, I instantly go to her shop to find something that fits my idea. I'm never disappointed either. She's such a talented jewelry designer that I just HAVE to show her off!

I'll stop babbling about how much I love her now. Check out the treasury if you want and then Betsy3's shop too. You won't be disappointed!

1, 2, 3... 6 new things!

The weather outside is frightful... so I've been staying inside and creating! Born and raised in Minnesota, I still don't love the cold. I can stand it. I just choose not to.

Slippers, sweater and sweats keep my comfy in my basement studio. Here are just a few things that are in my Etsy shop now.

Coal is my newest favorite. I love the length and the faceted glass beads. It's just a perfect simple necklace to wear. I've even made myself one and put it on every day so far!

First Floor is a simpler version of On the Level, with only one strand of beads. I have to order some more chain, but I plan on doing both designs in multiple colors soon. I love a pop of color with the most basic outfits.... So, though simple, these necklaces make me want to wear them all the time too. Oh, and yes, I've made a few for me.

I love these earrings. I love everything I make, I know... But these hold a special place in my heart. You can see a more elaborate version of them with my first wholesale order. They are the "Hot" earrings.

These are the Warm earrings! Less beads, a little more streamlined, still perfect!

I found these awesome antique brass hoops in my (mess of a) jewelry supply box and thought they'd look great in a very simple pair of earrings. The Lilt earrings. The Cobalt blue looks perfect with the antique brass!

They are just a bit shorter than the Cadence earrings. I really like long earrings. I know not everyone does, so I like to make the same earrings in different lengths.

The black is much more subtle, but I love it next to the antique brass too.

I've been a little stuck on bracelets lately. They are the item of jewelry I wear the most, but I haven't had the vision to make any. It's weird, like writer's block!

The Weave bracelet jump-started my creative drive though. I was playing with chain and the hoops and this design just came forward. I love the simplicity, yet it still has that unique flair too.

On The Level & Swing

I've been enjoying some much needed down time. I've been reading and relaxing and taken some time away from creating too. I'm going to jump back in to it tonight though. I've been missing it so much!

Here are a few items that I've made my self photograph and add to etsy.... I definitely need to get to listing!

Above is Swing in Champagne. It's a simple long necklace with no clasp.

I've been liking simplicity lately and both of these designs really show that, I hope! For a while, I've been combining Czech Pressed Glass beads and Antique Brass chain, but these two designs really let the glass shine instead of showing off more of the chain!

Here is On The Level in Yellow and On The Level in Coffee.

The design is really simple, but I liked the pop of color with the yellow. And the coffee color is so mellow, that it'd work with any color combos.

You can also find a few different colors of these necklace Shoppe Local in South Minneapolis
